Jay-Z and Meek Mill have officially launched REFORM alliance, a criminal justice organization committed to advocate for criminal justice and eliminate laws that perpetrate criminal justice. Additionally, they hope to get at least a million people out of jail over the course of the next four years. The organization’s official mission is to “[advance] criminal justice reform and [eliminate] outdated laws that perpetuate injustice, starting with probation and parole.”

The two rappers also joined forces with “Patriots owner Robert Kraft, 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, Nets co-owner Clara Wu TsaiVan Jones,” according to TMZ.

Since Meek Mil’s prison release, he has continued to use his platform to advocate for social justice. In a statement today, Mill said the organization is one of the ‘best decisions’ he’s ever made, continuing, “If you thought my case was unfair, there are millions of others dealing with worse situations and caught up in the system without committing crimes. With this alliance, we want to change outdated laws, give people hope and reform a system that’s stacked against us.”
